Screen Printing Vector Artwork
Vector file extensions:
.EPS .PDF or .Ai
Most suited for screen and pad printing in pantone spot colours. Vector-based files are necessary
for screen or pad printing logos, designs or illustrations that require precise measurements.
They generally contain well-defined elements such as curves and shapes of various colours.
They are also easily scalable due to their mathematical nature and their colours can be edited easily. Vector graphics are often inherently smaller in file size and are often universally editable and printable.
Please convert all text to paths.
Not suitable for Screen Printing Bitmap Artwork
Bitmap file extensions:
JPG .GIF .TIF .PSD or .BMP
Bitmap files are most suitable for full colour printing of photo-realistic images that require complex colour variations and are generally unusable for screen printing processes. They are not easily scalable due to being mapped to a non-flexible grid of pixels. If a bitmap-based image were to be enlarged, it would lose its sharpness and edges within the image and would appear jagged. Bitmap files are often heavily compressed to reduce their file size, over-compressed files are
unlikely to reproduce clearly.
